I was inspired by a customer...
In the weeks leading up to Christmas this past year, I set up my little paper flower market at quite a few holiday markets and art shows. It was fun spreading holiday cheer but the busy schedule was beginning to wear on me, that is, until a man walks into my (pop-up) shop and asks me to send a bouquet of flowers to his mother-in-law.
When I asked him what he'd like to include on the gift note, he winked and said "You can include 'Thinking of you' but don't sign it. I want her to enjoy them from a secret admirer." My interest was totally piqued but before I could inquire further he smiled and walked away.
Ever since then, I've been thinking about secret admirers -- both the one being admired and the one doing the admiring. My favorite thing about a gift from a secret admirer is that it's a selfless act but the pleasure is as much the givers as the recipients.
What did that man's mother-in-law think? Did she ever find out he was her admirer? Or does she still wonder, happy in the knowledge that some mysterious person cared enough about her to make her day?
...So I'm giving away THREE Valentine's Bouquets to THREE lucky recipients.
